The development of Downtown Dubai Properties is divided into 11 projects such as Dubai Fountain, Burj Khalifa, Burj Park Island, Dubai Mall, and The Address, which is at the heart of the complex. Emaar Square is a sophisticated low-rise office complex while South Ridge, The Residences, and Emaar Boulevard consist of high-rise residential towers. If you are on a hunt for a low-rise residential building, the Old Town and the Old Town Island are your best pick, in addition to Souq Al Bahar and three hotels.
The Dubai Mall
This is the largest shopping mall in the world by total land area and is home to 1,200 world-renowned shops apart from several attractions, including a water zoo, an aquarium, and an olympic-sized ice rink. It was opened on 4th November 2008 with roughly 600 retailers, which marked the largest-ever mall opening in the world's retail history.
The main centrepiece of Downtown Dubai, this 828-meter skyscraper is the tallest building in the globe and the tallest man-made structure ever created. The construction of this icon kicked off on 21st September 2004, and reached completion on 4th January 2010. It is valued at US$1.5 billion.
With an estimated cost of US$217 million (AED 800 million), this record-setting outdoor fountain is designed by WET Design, a California-based company that conceptualized the Bellagio Hotel Lake in Las Vegas. The 275-metre fountain is spectacularly illuminated by 6,600 lights and 50 coloured projectors, as well as shoots water 150 metres into the air accompanied by an array of classical to modern Arabic and international music. Emaar announced in 2008 that it would be named 'Dubai Fountain' as a result of a naming contest.
The Address Downtown Dubai
This supertall building that rises 306 metres alongside the Dubai Mall, the Burj Khalifa Lake, and the Old Town, is a hotel and residential tower with 63 floors. It is the 6th tallest skyscraper building in Dubai and the 36th tallest in the globe.
